Looking for community services and supports available during this crisis?
The City of Lethbridge has been working with HelpSeeker and the community to find and create a comprehensive list of what is still operating and available.
This is an unusual
time and due to the urgent and ever-changing nature of the situation, the City
of Lethbridge encourages you to take normal precautions when accessing any of
these services as they are not listed here as an endorsement of or by the City
of Lethbridge, and have not been vetted as such.
For the current list please visit HelpSeeker.org -
a free location-based help services network that allows you to find the
closest, most relevant service for your needs with complete privacy.
A printable pdf of the listings can be found here (updated May 15th)
Please note that we will update this pdf regularly as more service providers list and update their services on HelpSeeker's website.
